Questions & Answers

 

1. What is the gun surrender program?     It is our way to reduce the number of dangerous guns in Middlesex County. When you turn in guns, you make our neighborhoods safer and may save a life.

 

2. Can I be arrested for turning in a gun?    NO. We want to reduce the number of guns that might be used by criminals or cause injury, death or suffering.

 

3. I’m a good citizen, is this program for me?        Most guns are owned by law-abiding people. But, guns may be stolen in a burglary, found by a child even if the gun is locked up, used unexpectedly during a heated argument or during a time of great stress. Tragedies do happen with guns owned by good citizens.

 

4. What kind of guns can I turn in?    Any firearm or weapon can be surrendered, but payment will only be made for handguns and assault weapons in operable condition.

 

5. How do I know if my gun is an assault weapon?      Go to the New Jersey State Police Website – www.NJSP.org, click on Public Information, New Jersey Firearms Laws, NJ Attorney General Guidelines, Assault Firearms.
